Tel Hai Salt Kiln

This one got a full blast of salt

Slab-built and thrown mugs

A couple of slim storage jars

2nd-year student Maayan got some good results..

The kiln door has seen better days...

We fired last Wednesday; the firing went well,lasting 10 1/2 hours with 7 1/2 kilos salt. I could see some frothing on the silicon-carbide shelves,so was expecting more damage to pots than we found when we opened the kiln on Tuesday. The kiln was very loosely stacked,and the salt seems to have found its way around the pots evenly. Before every firing I think that this may be the last one in this kiln; afterwards, there always [so far] seems to be enough structure for one more firing...

Very nice! Great work!
Please Daniel, do you think you can explain how to make these oval /square casseroles, and /or do a video on how to make them?

Your fan,
